The Trade Deadline arrived with most big deals having already been made, but there was a few notable events towards the end. This will certainly NOT be a comprehensive list, but a few highlights:

Blues send Wade Redden to Boston Bruins for a 2014 7th-Round Pick.

The biggest splash of the day: the Columbus Blue Jackets acquire Marian Gaborik in exchange for Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett and John Moore. Notably, Gaborik had to waive a no-trade clause to seal the deal.

Also, the BJs picked up Blake Comeau from Calgary for a 5th-round pick.

Also Also, the BJs sent Steve Mason to Philadelphia for Michael Leighton and a 2013 3rd-round pick. Sounds like JD and Jarmo were tearing up the phone lines today. The Blues play the Blue Jackets this Friday.

Minnesota made a splash, picking up Buffalo's Jason Pominville, shipping out goalie Matt Hackett and Johan Larsson.

The San Jose Sharks picked up Scott Hannan from Nashville, with the Preds getting a conditional 7th-round pick. Towards the end of the day, the Sharks picked up Raffi Torres in exchange for the Phoenix Coyotes' 3rd-round pick.

Former Blues goalie Ben Bishop was shipped to Tampa Bay, where Ottawa will get Cory Conacher and a 2013 4th-round pick.

Notable non-moves: Miikka Kiprusoff and Roberto Luongo both stayed with their current teams. If you have a chance to catch the Bobby Lu press conference, it's worth a watch.

Other moves may be announced later, as there's always a lag in processing the paperwork at the end of the day. Have your say below, share your thoughts and opinions.
